Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (ゴジラvsメカゴジラ, Gojira tai Mekagojira, released in Japan as Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla), is a 1993 Japanese science fiction tokusatsu kaiju film featuring Godzilla, produced and distributed by Toho. The film is directed by Takao Okawara and is the 20th film in the Godzilla franchise and the fifth film in the Heisei series. Despite its Japanese and English titles, the film is neither a remake or sequel to 1974’s Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.
The film was released in Japan on December 11, 1993 and released straight to pay-per-view satellite television in the United States in 1998 by Sony Pictures Television. The film was initially heavily promoted through advertising and a spin-off children’s television program as the last film in the Heisei Godzilla series, as Toho producers wished to avoid competing with TriStar’s then upcoming Godzilla reboot.
